IBD/TIPP Poll IBD/TIPP 2012 Presidential Election Daily Tracking Poll

Day 1: Oct. 9, 2012

Romney: +2.0

Romney held a 2 point lead over Obama among likely voters in the first day of our presidential tracking poll as both men and independents solidly supported the GOP candidate. A key swing group making up nearly a third of voters, independents favor Romney over Obama 52%-34%. In 2008, Obama had a 52% to 44% edge among independents. Romney also has a 54% to 38% advantage among men voters, a group Obama won by one percentage point in 2008. Intensity among Romney voters has also strengthened: 70% of Romney voters now support him strongly, vs. 62% in September and 46% in August.

Democrats are so close to their Marxist utopia that they will do anything to keep it from slipping away. The Secret Service better double-up Romney's protection detail.

If Romney wins independents by 18 on election day, this will be a Reagan-Carter type landslide.

Yup, things are going to start to get very dicey, very soon as things get worse and worse for Bathhouse Barry! These leftists will do anything to retain power. Anything!

The Fed will pull the plug on the easy money November 7. It will then be "the Romney economy," "the Republican economy," or some such. At that point, Congress should take the reins, immediately.

This is no time for wimps. It's going to be a very bumpy ride.

To be strictly correct: they are using a sample of Registered Voters that is D+8. They do not report the makeup of Likely Voters.

Let 'em. The Romney team is blasting away, too. Only one of them has the Big Mo and it isn't Obama.

I'm praying the wind stays at R&R's back. But it is October and the month is young. The donk dirty tricks squad is certainly working overtime, and if the MSM can find a way to save their Chosen One they will. I think we are in for a wild ride.

Best case scenario:

Romney/Ryan win; GOP holds House majority; GOP wins Senate, but well short of 60 seat majority.

Outcome: Senate Democrats CAN and will block much of what GOP would hope to accomplish.

That is unless GOP changes Senate rules.

I love watching the NBC elections page social media section.

It updates daily with an analysis of what people are saying on Facebook and Twitter, and the thing is....Romney is ahead by several points in terms of people stating their vote preference. Also, and this has been consistent for a week to two weeks, the analyzed comments are 60-40 negative toward Obama, while Romney is fairly even.

This is I think a very interesting piece to the puzzle. What people are saying is very important.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032553/#.UHRygDGe4WU

As for urban myth stuff.....

Dems are LOVING to point out the 7-11 Poll of cups, which has Obama up big right now. The thing is, while that has been accurate in past races, it likely is not this year. If it’s right, Obama would even kill Romney in Texas. That’s not going to happen....That metric will likely fail to indicate enthusiasm this year.

The 7-11 cups are only medium at least at my 7-11. I assume most conservatives are smart enough to spend the extra dime to get a large, and therefore only Obummer’s fans are participating.

That is the voter fraud margin for Bammy. It’s really good news that Romney is ahead even given voter fraud accounted for.
